On Saturday, the 36-year-old star posted on her Instagram Story looking for reassurance from fellow parents that she was doing the right thing to prevent little Mia from choking on her breakfast.

"I chop them so small but I know how slippery they are so can't relax while she's eating them," penned Gemma, who explained to fans that she chops the fruit into halves, and then halves again, to ensure her daughter doesn't choke.

Gemma shared her concerns with fans

The star tragically lost her father when she was just 17 to a heart attack, and candidly told fans her fears for Mia's future. "I’d hate for Mia to go through what I went through age 17. With what’s happened of late it’s proof that just because we can look fit and healthy, it isn’t always the case that our hearts are functioning correctly. I’m excited but also nervous of what the outcome will be as I’ve always wondered if heart disease is hereditary."

Luckily, Gemma shared that her results were hugely positive, revealed that her heart had the health of a 24-year-old male.
